Not to be outdone by the other pro sports, the MLB All Star Game also made the list. Slated for Tuesday, July 14 at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, OH, the MLB All Star Game is a big hit with baseball fans every year. Seeing as it made the top five list in January, it is clear that will not be changing in 2015.

A night of excitement and fun is in store for anybody attending All Star Saturday Night which includes the ever-popular Slam Dunk Contest. The chance to see an event like this only comes to a city once every 20 years or so, it is expected these events will continue to be hot right up until the day they’re held.

Todd BowlesThe New York Jets have wasted little time in replacing recently fired GM John Idzick and Head Coach Rex Ryan, bringing in two New Jersey natives to help right the ship.

Cleaning house on December 29th, the Jets took just a hair over two weeks to name their replacements. Hightstown, New Jersey native Mike Maccagnan takes the reigns as General Manager and Elizabeth, New Jersey Todd Bowles leaves his post as Defensive Coordinator with the Arizona Cardinals to take over as head coach of the New York Jets.

The 51-year-old Bowles is a former defensive back with the Washington Redskins and has spent 15 years an an assistant coach in the NFL. In the 2000 season, he was part of the Jets coaching staff when he coached the Defensive Backs under Al Groh.

The pair have their work cut out for them. Under Rex Ryan last season, the Jets finished last in the AFC East, compiling a record of 4-12. While the Jets for the most part had a solid defense during Ryan’s tenure, they struggled mightily to establish stability and consistency on the offensive side of the ball. A series of Offensive Coordinator and starting quarterback changes failed to improve the team’s production.

The pair of Maccagnan and Bowles bring a renewed sense of optimism to MetLife Stadium for New York Jets fans as they look forward to the draft and training camp with great anticipation.

Earlier this month, Adidas (the NBA’s official on-court apparel supplier) unveiled uniform and apparel designs for the upcoming 2015 NBA All-Star Game. The uniforms pay homage to the game’s host city — New York City.

David Cho, who oversees the NBA partnership with Adidas said, “It’s simple and timeless. It’s a nod to the history, culture and style of New York City basketball.”The uniforms are relatively plain and have many changes from those of previous years.

Since the 1960s, the NBA has had the conference identifiers “East” and “West” on its All-Star Game jerseys, but that distinction is missing from the uniforms this year. Instead, players from the Western Conference will wear black, while those from the Eastern Conference will wear white. Accessories like headbands, arm bands and more will use the traditional color scheme: red for the West and blue for the East.

Additionally, for the first time ever, the uniforms will include the first and last name of the player on the back of the jersey. The first name will be above the number and the last name will be below it.
